Thought Bubble 2012 Photos and Stuff

Hello! Sorry for the delay, I had to wait for the photos and then I was too busy to sit and write this all out. Sarah took some photos of our table using her camera at Thought Bubble this time. But that does mean that I'm in the photos instead of Sarah - Sorry! 

Sarah made some new beautiful watercolour postcard designs in time to take to Thought Bubble!

This photo is of Issues 2-6 of What's The Time Mrs Woolf? - you can read more about Sarah and Lily's zine on their WTTMW? blog

This is a photo of the Artists trading cards! they were a lot of fun to make! Top row paintings by Sarah, ink drawings on the left by Sammy and bottom right paintings by Shaz

This is a photo of the music fan zine that Sarah and I made. Then my self published comics  followed by Inspired's latest anthology, Eat Me! 

These photos are of Inspired's old anthologies (on the stand). We're actually very low on stock for some of these comics so I've listed them on Etsy encase anyone is interested in grabbing a copy before they become out of print. We wont be printing any more copies in the future. 

The photo also includes Thin Ice by Shaz Jubeen, bunny food stickers and bookmarks by Cat Reda and bookmarks by Gem Sheldrake

Sarah also made her own dress! The design is from Josceline Fenton's Hemlock comics. Josceline also won an award over the weekend for emerging talent - congratulations!!

Thanks to everyone who came by the table! and thanks to Sarah, Lily and Shaz for coming to help at the weekend. 

Thanks for reading!

Art Cards at Thought Bubble 2012

We've been taking Sarah's hand painted artist trading cards to some events this year (left of the photo). They look like fun to make so a couple more Inspired members have been joining in to make some to take to Thought Bubble this weekend.

This photo is of some of the cards Shaz has been making. :D They're tiny water colour paintings like most of Sarah's trading cards.

And these are some of the designs I'll be taking - the characters are from Inspired's anthology Eat Me! Most the cards I've been making are ink on bristol board.

There might even be an oppertunity at the weekend to commission cards at the event - we'll probably have a sign up

We'll be in New Dock Hall on table 162 (in the middle of the hall - next to Jonathan Cape and opposite Nobrow - I think thats useful directions )

Thanks again for following this blog! I'll be online next week with a Thought Bubble write up thing

Dead Roots and Alex The Abominable

 The dead will walk in this all-new zombie comic anthology.


Want to experience the pain, suffering, despair and icky, gory bits of a zombie attack?

Of course you do.

Dead Roots brings together top talent from the worlds of TV, animation, films, comics and games to provide an anthology of stories from the early hours of a zombie outbreak.

From big splatter horror to intimate human drama via black comedy, bleak tragedy and the kind of storytelling that makes you pretend you guessed the ending all along. Dead Roots has it all.

This four-part, bumper-sized app-comic comes out every three months with 40 pages of glorious, zombie-based artwork.

Our comic reader lets you enjoy each comic in either full-page mode or by individual panels. But be careful - you might not want to get too close...

Jack Davies has been working on some new exciting comics outside of our Inspired anthologies. Dead Roots is a digital zombie anthology which is available through itunes


These are some exciting sneak peaks from Jack's Alex The Abominable book. It has a Dec/Jan estimated release date so I'll let you know more about how to get hold of a copy nearer the time! 

Thanks again!
